Jarrell, I haven't heard anything, from up North of me, I'm just about as far south as you can be and still be in the continental US. It has been a bear here, almost 2 weeks of rain, off and on. What's really bad is there wasn't enuff time for the ground cover to grow sufficiently to soak up the water after all the fires and like you said whole mountains slid into the valleys. Here inSANe DIEGO, we've had roads washed away, major flooding, and lotsa erosion, but nothing like the folks in LA have. I understand from the local weather folks there is a respite coming, maybe we can dry out a bit, my feet would really appreciate being dry for a while, not to mention the rest of me too. One good thing, kinda, all our reservoirs are almost full to capacity, so there shouldn't be a water problem later on this year.
Lot of people out there that could use our prayers/thoughts/etc. My folks live in Augusta Georgia which is close to the Aiken and Graniteville S.C. area that is dealing with the chlorine leak from the train accident. Really horrible - many dead - going into the plants in the area to find the dead that were there during the accident - hundreds of people that are still out of their homes - animal control going in to rescue pets in and out of homes that had to be left and were trapped ... - have had to call in law enforcement to keep looters out ... .
I'm hoping all the disaster victims everywhere get all the help they need.

... Hey Ron from my house (as the crow flies) the border is about 1 mile. What is it to the border from Imperial Beach???
We should start a border-Opel club. Actually I see new Opels badged as Chevy's (from Mexico) nearly everyday in Yuma.
Well, Paul, on the beach it's a walk through "Friendship Gate" and you're in Mexico. From my house (Margaret's), straight shot about 2 miles. I can stand on the roof of the house and see the bull ring, only because the houses across the street are in the way if I'm standing on the ground. On the I-5 it's about 3-5 miles because of the shape of the border and topography. Most of the cars coming in here from Mexico are the American cars that were stolen from here, reregistered there and sold there. Those are a lot less expensive than new or imports go for.
After fighting for too long to get my factory stamped pan flat and non-leaking I finally just decided to bite the bullet and design up my own aluminum one. Is there any interest in more? I have my first batch coming soon. It's made from 6061, shot-peened and hardcoat anodized aluminum...
Hi! After 6 years of hibernation I am reassembly my 73 GT. I bought new kick panels (3 years ago LOL!) but have misplaced some of the hardware. I'm missing three clips and 5 plugs. Unfortunately OGTS is out-of-stock. I want to install the kick plates before putting the dash in. If someone has...
After a couple weeks and a couple hundred miles I've come
to the realization that the wagon is waaayyy too noisy so
started down the path of trying to quiet the interior down
some. I priced Dynamat, picked myself up off the floor and
went looking for an alternative. Came across a product
Myself, Yvonne and a few friends of mine decided to get our cars out and ride up to the mountains of North Carolina today. Took old mountains roads and ended up at the oldest operating General Store in the United States, Mast General Store in Valli Crusis, NC. Still has a operating Post Office...
I was thinking that a thread where people can list Opels spotted and see if someone else owns it or if someone else is close enough to check it out might be useful. Maybe.
I went with a friend to Indiana to pick up some parts for his car and spotted a pale blue Manta (74-75) in some sort of...
